[IG Live] Black Women + Adult ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder)


Are you silently suffering, too?

🤷🏽‍♀️ What is Adult ADHD?
🤷🏽‍♀️ Do Black women suffer from it?
🤷🏽‍♀️ How do you know if you have it?
🤷🏽‍♀️ How do you get support?
🤷🏽‍♀️ What's it mean for your life, career/business + ability to actualize your dreams?

These are HUGE questions I'll be discussing LIVE on IG with dynamic host, master brand builder, and a personal mentor and sister-friend of mine, the entrepreneur extraordinaire – Germaine Leftridge*.

It's important for me to share that I have Adult ADHD – I have had ADHD all my life and it's been hiding in plain sight.

For 43 years, I believed a bald-faced lie that has cast its crippling and unyielding net on generation after generation of women.

Countless women have internalized the shame-filled experience of "If only I were different."

"If only I could make myself do the things other people do so easily – like turn in work on time or be on time without such a struggle or find their keys or remember if they locked the door or not wait until the very last minute or not obsess over the thing they said the last time they saw someone – every time!"

"If only I could get it together – everyday life tasks shouldn't be so hard, but I just can't seem to figure out how to [blank, blank, blank] –– filled in with almost any seemly 'easy' route task that 'shouldn't' take much time or energy but OMG, what the hell."

Here's the very, very sad internalized, self-loathing, self-hating, self-criticizing inner narrative I believed was TRUE ABOUT ME...

"I must be stupid. I must not care enough. I must not deserve the life I want because I can't seem to 'make it all happen' and I 'should' know how like everyone else seems to."

"I'm failing at my life."

"I'm an impostor, and I know it because I know everyone "thinks" I have it "together," but don't – it's a lie. I'm a fraud. I'm shaking in my skin because I can't function like other people."

"I try so hard to do life "perfectly" but I fail - every time. What the fuck is wrong with me? I must be broken."

OMG! I was so sad – for 43 year, and I'm only 43 years old – that's a very long time...

My whole life, I've carried a silent inner shame and sadness for not living up to a "normal pace of life."

Well, deep sigh of relief...

I am SMART!! Like SUPER SMART, AND (drumroll) I HAVE ADHD!!!!!!!

I'm both neurodivergent AND hella smart! Hallelujah! Aren't I a #luckygirl (and I mean it)?

Join me LIVE for a #gamechanging discussion with host Germaine Leftridge on IG to talk about the experience and the science of Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), especially in Black women, on Thursday, February 2, at 7 pm @detroitgermaine.

I see you living your Brilliance and advancing your professional dreams even if you can't right now. I hold the faith in you for you.

The best is already in you,

Coach Ryane
